Snakes have been found slithering around Jumeirah Park, according to residents in the area.
Although most of them seem to be harmless, it is reported that there have been few VENOMOUS snake sightings around various residential communities in New Dubai, including a deadly land snake spotted in Dubai Land.
The land snake, also called the land viper, is claimed to be so dangerous that it can kill a person within hours of being bitten.
Warnings have been issued to gated communities around New Dubai. For the safety of children, it is advised to stay indoors.
Dubai Municipality ensured swift action and is taking charge of the widespread issue.
